I have a beautiful family. I’m thankful for each of them and all of their differences. I have one daughter who is the most loving, curious, sensitive little girl I know. She gets straight A’s in school. Everything seems to come easy for her. But we’ve struggled with her behavior ever since she was about 18 months old (she’s now 7).
Most of the time her behavior was an issue at home and she did really well in school. But recently her outbursts began to filter their way into the school as well. It had gotten so bad that the school said “we don’t know what to do with her. We’re not equipped for this kind of behavior” To me they were saying “Put your child on medication or else.”
We knew we had to make some changes, but there is no chance we’re putting her on mind-altering medications. As a Chiropractor I take care of children with ADHD and other neurological disorders but for some reason my own child was not receiving the same level of care that my patients were.
So we made some big decisions. First, her Chiropractic adjustments were going to be a priority. There are specific neurological connections that will affect children’s brain function. So I put her on a regular adjustment schedule (2 times per week). Second we put her on a supplement that is designed to help her concentration and focus. This supplement is called Lumina from Metagenics. Then another one to help her deal with some mild anxiety called Trancor. These supplements aren’t like typical food based supplements, they really do work and should be monitored by a doctor.
What’s great about these supplements is that they are effective for adults dealing with focus problems and anxiety as well.
We also made a strong effort to remove most if not all sugar from her diet. That’s probably the most difficult of the 3 but the benefits are worth it.
Right away we noticed changes in our daughter’s behavior. She stopped getting naughty notes home from the teacher. There were no trips to the principal’s office. Her time at school really is a blessing. Thanks to her chiropractic care and 2 great supplements, we all look forward to school again.
These supplements are available to you on our online store. In case you ever wondered if we use the products that we promote, now you know. Based on these wonderful results, I think we’ll never go without them.
